More Information About Mothercare
Mothercare is a popular name on the high street – the chain of shops has been around for over 50 years. The store is primarily targeted at expecting and new mothers – it stocks a range of products for babies including clothes, push chairs, food, nappies and more. The company is particularly popular with expecting mothers due to the fact that they offer a range of flexible payment plans – allowing parents to save for the birth of their baby, reducing the financial impact when the baby is born.
Mothercare was founded back in 1961 – the company went public on the London Stock Exchange in 1972. The company has become popular with expecting mothers around the world – at the time of writing Mothercare has just shy of 1,100 stores globally – around 400 of those stores are here in the UK. The remainder of those stores are in 38 other countries. Stores can be found on major high streets, in shopping centres and precincts, and also in out of town shopping areas. The company employs just shy of 6,000 employees as of 2012. As well as a strong presence on many of Britain’s high streets, Mothercare.com offers parents up and down the UK the opportunity to buy from Mothercare’s expansive range without even leaving their home.
